The high school football season came to an end Saturday with Dunbar claiming the Baltimore area’s first state championship in three years. After 14 weeks of competition, only two teams ended the postseason with a win — the Poets and St. Frances, who have both won 12 straight games. The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion Panthers, the area’s only remaining undefeated team, have one more game late next month as four of the top teams in each state advance to the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series on Dec. 23 in Phoenix.
